And it rocks the world...the beans have, as beans do, reduced the heat level from the chilis, but not to nothing--it's just milder. The broth is...all by itself...a rich, dark brown liquid that wakes up the brain. The potato pieces are still together, not mushy. Since the combination started unsalted, the saltiness of the olives isn't too much and gives that sporadic bite of salt when you have one in your mouth.
The only thing that might improve it (that I can think of) is slices of a hard sausage, just to add another flavor in there, but I'm not going up to the store to get some. Not at the moment. I just finished one bowl of this stuff and I'm headed for more.
